    Suddenly, my sound is fuzzy as if a little piece of lip skin is fluttering in the m/p or lots of saliva has gathered at the tuning slide bend. BTW, neither is the case. Any advice will be appreciated.

    Clean the mold from inside of your mouthpiece. Fungi tends to get fuzzy.

    Do you know why mold gets invited to all the parties. Rumor is, he's a fun-gi!

    I'm having the same problem. I have been playing long tones, backing off until the "fuzz" clears up. It's seams to be getting better now.

    Maybe the chope are too tited. I sometimes get bad tones too after playing for a long time.

    Lipnutz, I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around "fuzzy." Are there any other ways you can describe it?

    Hi lipnutz,
    It appears that you are getting a double buzz. For example:
    When you play a note there's an annoying raspy buzz along with the normal buzz. Right?

    You were so right! When I removed that little mushroom the fuzziness was history.

    "Buzzy" may be a better word. However, as suddenly and unexpectedly as it started, it departed. Back to normal.
